Puppy Tooth Brushing

Good dental health can help prevent a variety of health conditions in later life, and it’s best to start brushing teeth early so pets get accustomed to it.

80% of adult pets have signs of dental disease but thankfully with a good dental routine it is avoidable. Daily brushing is the best way to prevent the build-up of plaque and tartar, and you’ll be given a dental cleaning demo at your Free Adolescent Assessment Nurse Clinic.at around 5 months.

  • Only use paste that is designed for dogs
  • Get into a routine of brushing daily
